As the protagonist steps out to look over a cliff edge, the narrator then says: “Now we see our hero, but only their silhouette, because the developers haven’t finished the design, or finished the story, or finished any gameplay that’s actually ready to show.

Daniel Ahmad, senior analyst at Niko Partners, tweeted: “Last I heard a new entry in the franchise is being explored, currently in pre-production.
“Could change into something else of course, but this is the current status.”
